Arralis has introduced a new Ka band phased array aircraft antenna that it says will great improve the throughput of satellites to aircraft.

Arralis says the antenna relies on the company’s analogue phase shifts, which allow the satellite beam to steered electronically. It has applications both for commercial and military aircraft.

“The Arralis compact, lightweight and aerodynamic Ka band phased array antennas, that need no stabilisation requirements, are 400% smaller than their Ku band counterparts and are made specifically with airliners, business jets, military aircraft and unmanned aerial vehicles in mind,” says the company.

“The innovative antenna will open up the aircraft markets to high data rates and low latency satellite communications.”
